Part of the joy of having kids is trying to understand your children. When it comes to television viewing, my choices can be considered… boring. I watch a lot of Discovery and Animal Planet and even Court TV (Now TruTV, but I refuse to call it that!!)
Recently, my son and I saw a show featuring razorbacks… after a series of questions, I chose the easiest explanation…. A razorback is a type of pig. At least a week later, during play, the child asks about the shaving pigs. I am ashamed to say, dear hubby had to rescue me and explain that the child was referring to razorbacks. Sigh. I am beyond kissing the pig, I am shaving it. Take that however you want.
Sad to say I spent all last weekend sick, first just mildly annoyed with everything, which moved into running a fever and achy pain. So I did nothing crafty. Really just nothing. No knitting. No sewing, not even a little bit of crochet. (I did pet yarn maybe once or twice, but nothing came of it…)
I did do a little science experiment with the kiddos…. Hubby, kiddles and I all went out front. We used a Geyser Tube, and created a very, very tall fountain of soda. It was explosive, messy and dreadfully fun. And if the video I took was not entirely populated with my wicked weird laughter I would post it. After said explosiveness, I had a perfect timing moment, I walk in the house, and dear daughter has filled her mouth with Pepsi…. and she has a Mentos in her hand. I have the camera in my hand, and now the moment my daughters head did not explode is saved for posterity. (also my cluttered kitchen, but I know y’all will POLITELY ignore that eh???????)
Yes, I did laugh. A Lot. Yes, she did clean the kitchen. A Lot. Just to solidify the brilliance of teenage logic, she did think her head “might” explode…..
How’s about to distract from my brilliant prodigy, I show you a finished sock? One pomatomus down, one to go…..
